As I understand it, the XML dumps are targeted for offline use.

This sounds as though people trying to re-use the dumps need to go online to
get this information. I think this is a perfectly reasonable enhancement

I'm marking this ticket with the "easy" keyword because it shouldn't be very
difficult to add this additional information to the XML dumps. The most
challenging part here is figuring out whether it's the PHP or the Python
maintenance scripts that generate these particular dumps. The actual output
logic can probably be cribbed from the MediaWiki API.
